Mike Trout homered and tripled in a 10-8 win over the Rockies on Thursday in the Cactus League.
He also drew a walk. It's the second homer in Arizona for Trout, and it came off of Tyler Anderson in the third inning with no one one. Mike Trout continues to do Mike Trout things. With all due respect to Jose Altuve and Nolan Arenado, he's the easy top pick in every format he's eligible for. Another MVP-type season could be on the way. Mar 15 - 7:32 PM

Mike Trout plans to try wearing a face guard with his batting helmet.

Trout was hit in the helmet by a pitch on Sunday and doesn't want to take any chances moving forward. "I was thinking about it before, but that sealed the deal," explained Trout, who will start wearing the face guard on Monday.

Mike Trout went 3-for-3 with a two-run single and a solo home run in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League loss to the Giants.

Now there's the Mike Trout we're used to seeing. After a slow start to the spring, the all-universe outfielder rocked the Giants with a two-run single in the third inning on Saturday, then followed that up with a solo homer -- his first since camp opened -- in the fourth inning. He's on a short list of MVP candidates for the upcoming season.

Mike Trout reached base in two of three plate appearances Wednesday in the Angels’ Cactus League loss to the Dodgers.

Trout grounded out in his first at-bat against Clayton Kershaw but followed that up with a walk in the third and an RBI single in the fifth. He also added his first steal of the spring, though the Angels would strand him at second base. Trout had been hitless in 10 at-bats prior to Wednesday but fantasy owners shouldn’t be concerned about his slow start. The two-time MVP set career-highs in both OPS (1.071) and slugging percentage (.629) last season and should be in for another monster year.

The Angels will lower the right field wall at Angel Stadium from 18 feet to eight feet.

Angel Stadium should be slightly more hitter-friendly than it has been in the past. The Angels have a right-handed heavy lineup, but the lefty-swinging Kole Calhoun should be happy to hear the news. This is one of those scenarios that could help Shohei Ohtani as a hitter (he hits left-handed) and potentially come back to bite him as a pitcher.

Angels owner Arte Moreno said he's open to the possibility of a contract extension for Mike Trout, though there haven't been any discussions to date.

Trout is currently under control through 2020. "Let's put it this way: It's always in our minds, we're always thinking about it," Moreno said. "If you look at long-term plans, you're always trying to position yourself for something like that. But we have three years. We try not to do anything in an urgent way. We don't think that's a good way of doing business."

Angels hitting coach Dave Hansen will not return for the 2018 season.

Anaheim finished 22nd in runs scored in 2017, despite having Mike Trout for 114 games. Hansen had served as the club's hitting coach for the last four years. He previously worked as a hitting coach for the Mariners and the 48-year-old former major leaguer was as a hitting instructor for the Dodgers before that.

Mike Trout went 1-for-2 on Sunday in the Angels season finale victory against Seattle.

The hit was a single. Trout finishes with a ridiculous .306/.442/.629 with 33 homers, and yet, you can't help but wonder what kind of numbers he could have put up if not for missing time with the thumb injury. Nevertheless, he's still the best player in baseball, and should be the top pick in fantasy drafts no matter the format.

Mike Trout homered in the first and eighth innings Friday to lead the Angels to a 6-5 win over the Mariners.

Trout's second homer was part of a four-run rally in the bottom of the eighth. The first homer was actually the 200th of his career, making him the eighth player in major league history to reach 200 by the end of his age-25 season. The last was his current teammate, Albert Pujols. Trout's OPS for the season is up to 1.084, which would be a personal best by 93 points over his .991 marks from 2015 and 2016.

Mike Trout had a three-run homer and two walks as the Angels topped the White Sox 9-3 on Tuesday.

The .450 OBP is still in play for Trout, who stands at .446 right now. No American Leaguer has come in at .450 since Manny Ramirez in 2002. Trout finished at .441 in leading the league last year.

Mike Trout hit his 30th homer, walked and stole a base Monday in a losing cause versus the White Sox.

Trout hit 29 homers in 159 games last year and still won an MVP award. This year, he has 30 in 109 games. He also has career highs in OBP (.444) and slugging (.623) with six days left to go.

Mike Trout went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday’s loss to the Astros.

Trout had a chance to play hero in the ninth inning, as he represented the potential tying run, but he grounded into a double play against Astros’ closer Ken Giles. He’s the greatest player on the planet and continues to get on base at a ridiculous clip, but his September has been rather quiet compared to his usual lofty standards. He’s hitting .231 (15-for-65) with two homers, five RBI, six steals, and 15 runs scored over 19 games.

Mike Trout was on base all four times up Thursday against the Indians, going 2-for-2 with two walks.

His career-best OBP is up to .450 now. It looks like Trout is going to end up qualifying for the batting title despite missing more than 40 games with a torn thumb ligament. He has a chance to be the first American Leaguer to finish with a .450 OBP since Manny Ramirez in 2002.

Mike Trout blasted his 29th homer run as the Angels fell to the Rangers on Sunday afternoon.

His solo shot off of Matt Bush in the eighth inning pulled the Halos to within two runs at 4-2, but that would be as close as they would get. Trout also chipped in a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. He finished the afternoon 1-for-2 plus a walk and was also caught stealing. He's slashing a mighty impressive .315/.452/.638 with 29 bombs, 65 RBI and 21 stolen bases.

Mike Trout will hit leadoff Saturday against the Rangers.

Yes, you read that correctly. It will be Trout's first action out of the leadoff spot since way back in 2013. Brandon Phillips has been handling leadoff duties of late, but he's out of the lineup Saturday after leaving Friday's game with tightness in his side.
